BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

One person’s report of a bug flying into their mouth on their food has prompted the health department of an IHOP in Belleville.

A sign taped on the restaurant’s door says the restaurant is temporarily closed for repairs.

However, an investigation by the St. Clair County Health Department found a leak in the lobby blamed for attracting gnats.

A customer filed a complaint about the incident earlier in October.

News 4 has reached out to the restaurant’s owner and to IHOP’s corporate offices, but have yet to hear back.

It is unclear if or when the restaurant may re-open.
